Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

According to Wikipedia:

Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (July 15, 1606 October 4, 1669) is generally considered one of the greatest painters in European art history and the most important in Dutch history.

Rembrandt was also a proficient printmaker and made many drawings. His contributions to art came in a period that historians call the Dutch Golden Age (roughly equivalent to the seventeenth century), in which Dutch culture, science, commerce, world power and political influence reached their pinnacles.


The 400th anniversary of Rembrandt's birth is this year (July 15th), and there is even an official website for it!

Wikipedia states that Rembrandt produced around 600 paintings, 300 etchings, and 2,000 drawings, including about 100 self-portraits.

Here are some links about the artist:

Rembrantpainting.net

Rembrandt - from Wikipedia

- from WebMuseum

and from The Artchive

many of these have other links of interest if you scroll down.

Pictures to come!
